Book Fair Week
Students and families were given the opportunity to shop the book fair throughout the week! The overall theme of our Book Fair was space/the universe and “Countdown to Your Next New Read.” We opened on Monday with a video about who created the universe and highlighting our theme verse Nehemiah 9:6. We had a fantastic time
at our “Blast Off Breakfast” on Tuesday morning! We want to say a great big THANK YOU to our astronaut who took time to come back from the moon to pose for pictures with our students! We had many opportunities for students to win and earn prizes and rewards throughout the week. Every student was encouraged to complete the “Reading Challenge” sheet. If they completed and returned their sheet, they received a prize and an extra entry in our prize
drawings. We had drawings on multiple days and 12 students won pre-selected books or “Scholar Dollars” to come to the book fair and choose a book. Students who memorized and could say our memory verse to Mrs. Hill or Mrs. Diener were awarded a small prize. We wrapped up Book Fair/Reading Week with a space-themed dress down day on Monday where we saw some fun costumes! Each elementary class had one winner who received a prize and all students who participated in the dress down received a small reward. Mrs. Hill would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all of our families who supported our Book Fair! We had a total sale of $4,321.38 and earned $1,649.07 in books for GCA! A special THANK YOU to all of the families that purchased a book out of the teacher wish baskets and donated a book to your classroom! Every elementary classroom received approximately $100 in books for their classroom library! We will use the remainder of the money to purchase hardback and library bound books for the GCA Library. Thank you again for supporting our school!
